3 stars "The Nameless Forever...The Last Remembrance" is the debut release by Czech Republic progressive extreme metal act Forgotten Silence. "The Nameless Forever...The Last Remembrance" was originally released as a demo tape in 1994 but it was re-released/re-mastered on CD in 2005 with a different cover artwork by Epidemie Records. The CD release is limited to 500 copies.

The music on the demo is progressive doomy death metal. There are lots of atmospheric keyboards in the music which provides the music with lots of melodic and epic qualities. The vocals are death metal growls. Strange almost gurgling growls. I find them rather charming. The song structures are varied which helps keep the music interesting throughout the entire playing time. Some of the tracks serve as interludes between the longer tracks and there are both spoken word parts and shorter intrumental pieces among them. The longer "real tracks" are all heavy and doomy pieces of death metal. My favorite is probably "Diamonds of the Night" which actually features a guitar part that reminds me of Psychotic Waltz and I have to mention that guitarist Prochin really plays some great stuff throughout.

The musicianship is solid and the sound production is really strong considering that this is actually a demo tape from 1994 but I wouldn´t call it fully professional sounding.

"The Nameless Forever...The Last Remembrance" is a promising demo and it´s fully understandable that Forgotten Silence opted to re-release the demo in CD form. I´d say a 3 star (60%) rating is fair.
